  • Life-changing Kiwanis Key Leader events continue throughout the world in 2011

    With the successful conclusion of the 2011 program year, Kiwanis Key Leader has served 16,369 students in 316 leadership conferences. Since 2005, events have been held in 39 US states, 5 Canadian provinces, Malaysia, Brazil, Cayman Islands, El Salvador, and Singapore. In 2011, Key Leader program sites were added or reintroduced in California, Nevada, Virginia, Florida (US), and Winnipeg, Edmonton, and Prince Edward Island (Canada). 

    The Key Leader program has also been introduced to groups from China, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Germany and Iceland, as well as the YMCA World Camp. Students from all over the world are being called to Servant Leadership and to live out the principles of Integrity, Growth, Respect, Community and Excellence. At the most recent event in Malaysia, students from Myanmar (formerly known as Burma) attended from their refugee centers within Malaysia. What an exciting Kiwanis outreach!!!!

    Students from this year’s events have told us about Kiwanis Key Leader: 

     “Everyone shared a common interest and it was to better ourselves and the communities we live in….I loved getting to meet so many new people and that I was always kept engaged in the presentations….I loved everything about the weekend.  I felt like I learned so much about myself and others….I’m going home with so many ideas on how to improve myself….Super fun and great learning….I met tons of new friends….Getting to know new people, learning about leadership and the sense of community….I learned how to become a better leader within my community and Key Club….I like how the Lead Facilitator is interactive with the participants and how the activities were fun….I met new people and realized things about myself that I hadn’t before….KEY LEADER IS AWESOME!!!”

  • World Leadership Survey for Students

    The Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) is conducting a survey to find out about students' views on workplace issues. If you're a student, please take 20 minutes and fill out this online survey. If you're an adult who works with students, encourage them to fill it out. The more of you who respond, the better their results will be! The following is a description of the survey from CCL:

    How do you want work to be?  What do you think should be important to leaders?  What do you think you need to know to succeed in your first after-college job?  The Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) is currently conducting a groundbreaking World Leadership Survey for Students.  
    We believe that students and the organizations they want to work for will be more successful if each has an accurate and up-to-date picture of students' views on important workplace issues. To create this picture, we need to hear from you about your personal experiences and your views of the workplace.
     
    The survey takes about 20 minutes, can be taken online at: 
     
    https://feedback.clearpicture.com/ccl_studentsurvey/
     
    As a thank you, CCL is giving each respondent a choice of one of two free CCL Guidebooks (Learning from Life or Do You Need a Team?), available for download immediately after submitting the survey. 
     
    Information provided by respondents is confidential, and you will receive reports on the results of the survey if you choose to include your e-mail address at the beginning of the survey.
